POTW: Election Night at WRVO (2010)

November 5, 2010 by

OSWEGO -- It's the biggest night of the year for virtually every newsroom in the country: Election Night.  And WRVO is no exception.  The station had "all hands on deck" to report the results, along with a few special guests providing analysis.

No time to pose for a "class photo" (and those usually look silly anyway), so here's an action shot from the inside of one of WRVO's studios.  At far left in the gray shirt is Senior News Producer/Reporter Dave Bullard, looking over the shoulder of Morning Edition local anchor Jason Smith.  The pair are occupied with something on a computer monitor, in this shot which appears to have been taken sometime during the 9pm hour.

On the right side are two political science professors invited to provide commentary on the races.  Nearest the middle is Dr. Grant Reeher from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, and at far right, Dr. Bruce Altschuler of SUNY Oswego.

We found this shot via WRVO's Facebook page -- take a peek yourself for more than 30 other photos from Election Night 2010.

Hey, we're on Facebook too!
